About the original book:
Tom Hazard begins his first-person narration by outlining his current state of affairs. He may appear to be a normal 40-year-old man, yet he has been alive for centuries. On March 3, 1581, he was born in France. His disease stops him from maturing normally; every 15 years or so, he ages one year.
The mass population is unprepared for such information; human superstition is just too prevalent. Those who have the disease are shielded by an organization that eliminates those who discover the truth. As a token of appreciation for the Albatross Society's protection, each member is required to complete a task on occasion.
These tasks frequently entail enlisting the help of people who have the same disease or eliminating hazards. Tom is assigned such an assignment in Sri Lanka inside the first few pages, but his victim is already dead when he arrives.
